I've been in a wonderfully calm and happy mood all day. I want it to last forever but I also enjoy that it happened at all. :LZSproud: Feb 13, 2019

        It's nice to know when others are calm and happy. Brings a smile to my face. I hope it lasts you a while :)

        @Vance Raehart You could try anyway. You could also get your butt banned. So many possibilities! ;)

        @samkfj I'm glad you got an extra smile out of this! :D I think it will, I know what I did to make the day start calm, and I intend to do it again tomorrow.

        Aww. I hope you feel better too. Ginger is my favorite thing for all things upset tummy. It's spicy hot the same way cinnamon is but it really helps and you can get used to the kick.

        I don't think so, but I am certainly not against someone using it that way. Whatever works for you! Personally, I think if you're going to match it to an RTP, it matches XP better. It needs a palette change, but that's easy enough when you're dealing with pixel art.

      70% Cocoa is officially (for me) the best darkness level. Sweet enough to be palatable and pure enough to for maximum chocolateyness. Yum!

        My girl hates it too--she says it's because of the fake taste and how it's mostly sugar.

        Girls are weird about chocolate. There's a lot of things in chocolate that are super useful for certain times of the month. Magnesium, iron, caffeine, sugar, and more. Also the mood benefits are apparently true, it boosts production of endorphins and neurotransmitters. Not all girls like or crave chocolate, but there's a reason why so many do.

        I am not worried about it and you do not have to say sorry to me. It is just an honest mistake. That is the problem with posting on text only, people can easily misunderstood each other's without see face to face.

        It is good to understand other situations that is a part of being a human.

        Heh, pretty much. My brain's RAM is pretty big but I'm ADHD, so I have to keep all of something in my head at once to work on it (instead of just the relevant parts with other things retrieved as needed like a normal brain) and get reeeeeally easily distracted. It's better to keep notes and references so I can pick the whole thing up again when I refocus.

        I think this time the number of things I'm bouncing between when distracted or bored has just gotten out of hand. Normally it's just 3, right now it's more than 6. I might also be in a manic phase which dials up my ADHD, creative drive, curiosity, and lack of self preservation to an 11.

        I think I can honestly say that your sand detail is the first time I've seen sand tiles for a game with something that actually looks like the sea has flowed over it. That bottom left section looks like sand on a real beach.

        I really can't agree with you there, RBI, I think the NES Palette is poorly constructed. I really like Dawnbringer and Arne's stuff, but they both require a good understanding of color to use I guess.

        Ah, just realized how misleading some of this might be. Pixel Myth's palette won't ever be completely static or changed to an already existing one. I just want a more clearly defined palette to work from.

        @Sharm, @starlight dream must have a point there; you can start a tread with things to try. Sometimes the most challenge seeking fellas will gather in the tread and themselves try that stuff and come in other treads with words for it and improvements maybe. Then, unless you seek credits for teaching, you'll be seeding lessons and new teachers for the knowledge you wanna spread. :)

    I got my start doing commissions for indie gaming projects and eventually found my way here. While I no longer do commissions, I really love to make pixel art and love seeing my artwork move and be interacted with. I'm currently busy making the Pixel Myth packs and loving every minute of it. I'd like to someday make a game that incorporates elements of RPG, VN and Point and Click Adventure games in a way that it's none of those genres but something different. I also enjoy writing and crafting (usually crochet).
